Ignite Stage: Lessons learned from a long-term intervention on DIDRR in rural communities in Bangladesh

During this Ignite Stage presentation, CBM highlights the main learnings from the long-term intervention on Disability Inclusive Disaster Risk Reduction (DiDRR). Not only do we present the successful outcomes and replicable approaches, but also look at the remaining gaps, and critically reflect on whether the established community based DiDRR systems are able to continue working without further external financial and technical support from CBM.

Date: 25 May, 14:30 Indonesia Central Time/09:30 Central European Time
